"Blessed is She" (BIS)

Blessed is She is about prayer, fellowship, and growing closer to God through our Catholic faith. Have you been searching for a deeper relationship with Jesus? Are you looking for a place to be able to share and grow in your spiritual journey with other women?  This women's faith sharing program is one way to bring Catholic women of all ages together, to learn more about our faith and grow closer in Christ and with one another. There is no homework or preparation needed, except to show up. This is a devotional based program in which we as Catholic women discover more by reading a devotional together, discussing and answering thought-provoking questions that help us relate to each other in our faith community and grow in our relationship with God. BIS-Daily Devotions

Fall Session: September 22, 2022 with a virtual group Zoom meeting. Join us for a cup of coffee.

Watchman | That Man is You (TMIY)

Our purpose is for men of Sts. Simon and Jude to connect on a regular basis. We join together in prayer, meditation, and support of each other. Our focus is on prayer, scripture, traditions, and our role as Catholic men. We meet each Friday morning, before the workday, at 6:00am. Bring your Bible and have coffee and friendship in Christ. All men of faith are welcome in this group.

 

TMIY is an interactive men’s program combining the best research from science with the teaching of the Catholic faith and the wisdom of the saints to develop the vision of man fully alive. By honestly addressing the pressures and temptations that men face in our modern culture, That Man is You! seeks to form men who will be capable of transforming homes and society.

Why Catholic?

Are Catholics ready to "Go and Make Disciples" - THE ANSWER IS YES! - WHY CATHOLIC? Presented by Renew International

Catholics often face opportunities to share their faith with others but lack the basic knowledge and confidence to do so. Why Catholic? It has a rich scriptural and catechetical approach that gives a solid foundation for every Catholic to express their faith and reach out to others in faith.

Whether you meet in the home or on the SSJ campus, there is a group to fit everyone! Learn how you can turn to your church to meet more people, build community and grow in your faith journey by joining SSJ Small Communities. We’d love to have you!
